About The Gorgie Mem



Our building has a very long history, it was built in 1887 and called “the little church in the field”.

After the First World War, it was chosen to be the memorial for those that had fallen and renamed as Gorgie War Memorial Hall.

The hall became a community centre in 1938. Over the years the management committee has been made up of a variety of passionate local folk, with a desire to ensure the Mem is used by all. 


The hall is owned by City of Edinburgh Council and is leased to the management committee who are a charitable organisation responsible for the running of the centre. We are a small group of volunteers, and are looking for additional members, if you would like to help, please drop us an email.
